Blues music laid the foundation for rock and roll. Some of the most well known musicians of early rock such as Elvis Presley, and Jerry Lee Lewis borrowed heavily from the blues both lyrically and melodically. In this wonderful card set, thirty-six early blues musicians are lovingly depicted by famed cartoonist R. Crumb, with concise biographies on reverse. Mississippi John Hurt, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Memphis Minnie, Charley Patton, Jaybird Coleman, Blind Willie Johnson, the Mississippi Sheiks, Sleepy John Estes, Roosevelt Sykes & many others, both giants in the field and obscure. These are printed on heavy card stock and housed in a very cool gift box. Heroes of the Blues is part of a set of three boxed trading cards that also includes Early Jazz Greats and Pioneers of Country Music. These are hugely popular with fans of both blues music and Crumb.
